We had a private sail and lobster bake. First the not so good (not horrible, I did rate 4 out of 5.) The owner of the company showed up late with the supplies, so we had to wait for everything to be loaded. This did not thrill us. Neither did the fact that we were in Maine and the pie was not blueberry - seriously? This was on top of having to reschedule our sail, which was fine, but when we booked we chose an alternate date which we were unable to rebook to. When you are on vacation you have plans and we deliberarely worked with the owner to have an alternate date, but he double booked our alternate day. We were as flexible as we could be and the result was just fine as the owner hires the BEST in the field. Here comes the positives - Our captain Lou and his first mate Paige were amazing! They worked fast to get us on the water and took us on a wonderful sail. When we got to Cranberry Island, which we had all to ourselves, they had to anchor the sailboat and row us to shore. Talk about adventure. While we explored the beach, they rowed back and got the supplies from the boat. We hiked to Cranberry house and when we came back we were greeted by a beautiful beach fire and a picnic spread of lobster, corn, potato salad, green salad, bread, brie cheese, fruit and more. It was AMAZING. We really enjoyed this adventure! The sunset sail back was gorgeous and romantic. So, just do it. Book it. It isn't cheap, but it will forever be a highlight. Just be sure if something comes up to go with the punches so you can enjoy this wonderful excursion.
